Find Out The ‘Most Dangerous Celebrity To Search Online’

As for the American "most dangerous" list, actress, Ruby Rose, took the top spot.

Actress Ruby Rose arrives at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala (Met Gala) to celebrate the opening of Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination in the Manhattan borough of NY, U.S., May 7, 2018.

And in the US, Orange Is The New Black beauty Ruby Rose topped the list.

It says cybercriminals have been known to use well-known celebrities to trick a person into accessing links that go straight to malicious sites.

Over on the U.S. list, meanwhile, Kourtney Kardashian and Rose Byrne were flagged alongside the likes of actress Marion Cotillard, original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter and Amber Heard.

Searching for Kim Kardashian online could be risky - and not just because she keeps breaking the internet.

The fact is, United are no better off than they were before Mourinho. "I am fully supportive of the manager and my team-mates". But another Old Trafford hero, Paul Ince, reckons Mourinho could be sacked on Saturday if United lose to Newcastle.

The Orange is the New Black star topped the list of celebrity names that turn up unrelated malicious websites and malware in their search results.

These sites are the locations from which malware is installed on the devices, through which personal information and passwords can be accessed and stolen.

Kardashians also ranked high on McAfee's list, with Kourtney at 7, and sister Kim at 19. The original Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter, comes in at number four, while Rose Byrne rounds out the top five.

"We live in a fast-paced world that's heavily influenced by pop culture where it's possible to pick and choose which entertainment options we prefer to enjoy from a variety of connected devices", Gary Davis, chief consumer security evangelist at McAfee, said in a statement.

Alongside its lists, the cyber security firm has also published advice on how to stay safe online, urging people to only stream video and click on news stories from trusted sources, and to keep apps and anti-virus software up to date.
